23. Funtime Bounce Limited can handle 100's of deliveries per day. With many unforeseeable contributing factors including delivery delays, road works and vehicle failure, though unlikely, you may experience a delay in your delivery. Delivery times are not guaranteed though we will try our utmost to deliver your goods in a timely and consistent manner. For the sake of good order, your delivery can take place at anytime from ''The equipment shall be delivered from'' to the ''The equipment shall be used from'' times as indicated on your booking confirmation unless prior arrangements have been made beforehand. We understand that delays can be both frustrating and disappointing and in such circumstances, the following late compensation policy will apply: 25-60 minutes after the indicated ''used from'' time: 10% of the hire price will be compensated (capped at £150.00) 61-120 minutes after the indicated ''used from'' time: 15% of the hire price will be compensated (capped at £175.00) 121+ minutes after the indicated ''used from'' time: 25% of the hire price will be compensated (capped at £200.00) Compensation reimbursements will be issued from the registered office on the next working day after the delivery has taken place, not on delivery of the goods from your driver. Reimbursements will be made by either BACs for all bank, cheque and cash payments and debit/credit card reimbursements will be issued directly back to the debit/credit card used at the time of the order. Late penalties will be calculated using the company vehicle tracking system working on real time updates. Should you choose to refuse a late delivery, for reasons outside of our control, full payment will be required. However, Funtime Bounce Limited does not have to pay compensation if the delay was caused by a situation beyond its control or if the item was not ordered correctly. Examples where Funtime Bounce Limited would not have to pay compensation include: Severe weather conditions preventing the installation of the equipment safely Acts of terrorism There is an error/change on the booking form that the hirer has not signed off on the booking agreement Major traffic delays or a severe state of emergency It is expressively recommended that an hour is allocated for both delivery and collection of your goods (additional time required for multiple items delivered). Even though it is likely that the equipment ordered may take less time to install than this recommended time, affording this recommendation will ensure that in the event of an unforeseen delivery delay occurs, this will not adversely effect your event. Should you choose not to afford this recommendation, Funtime Bounce Limited can not be held responsible for unforeseen delays effecting your event.


24. Where required, we will require sufficient parking for our vehicle. This will include time taken to load/unload. In the event Funtime Bounce Limited are providing supervisory staff or operative staff, parking provisions may be required for the duration of the event.
